But Growly wants to know the reg of the plane not just that "Air France flight 111 is on time on a 747" or whatever
Growly, I have never heard of such a thing.
Maybe if you call the airline at the gate.
This number is hard to get i'd imagine but I got a gate phone number of Midwest Express which is what I always fly in BOS so I always call that to get ACCURATE flight status etc so i'm sure I could get the N number from whoever answers that phone.
But in your case I don't know how else you would do it.

Well, the closest thing I've got to knowing the "status" of a flight with a/c regn is the Amsterdam Schiphol web site flight info. Now, this only gives you arrival/departure details of flight in and out of AMS/SPL, but it's the only airport flight info web site (so far that I've encountered) that now only tells you the a/c type but a/c reg as well. You may want to take a look - http://www.schiphol.nl and click on flight information. I think it's cool!...
BTW, I think the AMS/SPL web site was the first to put flight into on the web, way back in 96/97 I think...Well, at least that's the fight airport web site with flight info that I came acriss back then...Dunno abt the rest tho
